ARM Research Summit: Research Roadmap Keynote Live Website


12:33PM EDT – We’re still at the ARM Research Summit, and the keynote talk on the ARM roadmap is about to start!

12:33PM EDT – Eric Hennenhoefer, VP Research for ARM, on stage

12:34PM EDT – Has a background in verification, moved to ARM when the company was acquired

12:35PM EDT – ARM Licencing model: IP Provider, licence fees and royalties

12:35PM EDT – ‘Everyone who participates, wins’

12:35PM EDT – ‘Design things once, and reuse it across multiple partners’

12:35PM EDT – 1250 licences, increases 100+ per year

12:36PM EDT – 350+ partners for potential royalties

12:36PM EDT – 86 billion ARM chips (not cores) shipped to date, 25% compound annual growth rate over last 5 years

12:37PM EDT – Ongoing royalties are typically based on a percentage of chip price

12:37PM EDT – Upfront licence fees cover development cost

12:38PM EDT – ‘There’s no point making something, signing up partners, and they don’t ship anything’

12:40PM EDT – ARM Artisan IP is popular apparently

12:40PM EDT – Acquired Apical in the last year

12:41PM EDT – Price ranges from 50c / chip to over $25 (depends on partners, ARM doesn’t make the chips remember)

12:42PM EDT – ARM has silicon partners, software/training/consortia partners, design support partners

12:43PM EDT – ARM Research as a unit are 3-7 years ahead of the product teams. That’s important

12:43PM EDT – ARM Research are based from n+2

12:43PM EDT – A combination of targeted and blue-sky research

12:44PM EDT – Combination of internal research teams and academic/research partnerships

12:44PM EDT – ‘We work on disruptive technology roadmaps’

12:45PM EDT – ‘One of the jobs is to look at potential disruptive technologies, what they mean to ARM, and what it takes to make them real’

12:45PM EDT – This includes attending conferences and knowing lots of people with potential

12:47PM EDT – As the number of devices increases, research like energy harvesting becomes important

12:47PM EDT – especially for ‘edge’ devices (ones at the end of the communication chain)

12:48PM EDT – ‘The compute is there, you can see the future coming’

12:49PM EDT – ARM Research is split into skill areas

12:49PM EDT – Some technologies die before it reaches ARM, but ARM still needs to keep abreast of partner development

12:50PM EDT – Memory/Interconnect team deals with 3D Memory, non-volatile memory etc

12:51PM EDT – The architecture group works with the product teams, but is working on long term projects

12:51PM EDT – e.g. Scaleable Vector Extensions was in the works for 7 years

12:51PM EDT – Also, ‘More without Moore’ is discussed in this group

12:52PM EDT – Such as arch/uArch, or new methodology, or new materials

12:53PM EDT – ‘Let’s not leave security to software, too many unsecure video teddy bears are being hacked – we need to bake it into hardware’

12:53PM EDT – ‘We also need to do it in cost effective ways’

12:53PM EDT – ‘The more protocols, the more ways to screw it up’

12:55PM EDT – The Applied Silicon group goes through integration, sensor nodes, or things like printed electronics

12:55PM EDT – Also future silicon technology, what’s after MOS

12:56PM EDT – ‘Aggressively looking for new and interesting things’

12:56PM EDT – ‘Please invent something. Disruptive. In this area.’

12:58PM EDT – Research into verification, HPC, efficiency, compute near memory

12:59PM EDT – Machine learning, Graphics, Computer vision and mobile systems have strong research teams

01:00PM EDT – Special projects such as motors and low power radio

01:01PM EDT – ARM has doubled in since in a few short years

01:01PM EDT – Didn’t used to be interesting to Academia, was considered the keyboard chip people

01:02PM EDT – ARM sees value in creating a Research Ecosystem, with discussions and events like this

01:03PM EDT – Academia and ARM can work together – it depends on what you want to do

01:04PM EDT – Cooperations involve publishing, open source, non-exclusive IP rights, pooled funding

01:04PM EDT – Most academics are on the pre-competitive side

01:04PM EDT – Some work in the Competitive side, which has more rules

01:05PM EDT – NDAs and Patents/IP are issues to cover on a case-by-case basis

01:06PM EDT – ARM encourages university enablement via free materials

01:06PM EDT – starter kits, tools, some IP are free

01:06PM EDT – More access can be had, have to ask. There may be free toys which can help depending on what we have

01:08PM EDT – Accelerators are a common topic of discussion

01:09PM EDT – IP enablement is a win-win when it accelerates research, especially when it gets disruptive

01:09PM EDT – ARM Research has strong IP and legal teams to help smooth IP sponsorship with academia as well

01:10PM EDT – ARM developing the Research ecosystem. The current Summit is an example

01:11PM EDT – Participation in many EU academic collaborative projects

01:11PM EDT – Lots of positions available at ARM, doubled in size in four years

01:12PM EDT – Graduate positions, internships as well

01:12PM EDT – Shanghai site is being ramped up as well

01:14PM EDT – That’s a wrap!
